GMWEA initiated Water Quality Day in 2014 to remind Vermont citizens and policymakers of the crucial role water, wastewater, and stormwater management plays in Vermont's way of life -- and to honor the boots-on-the-ground professionals who make the miracle happen 24/7/365. Check back here soon for the date and locations of Water Quality Day 2018.
Water Quality Day
89 Main St., Suite 4, Montpelier, VT 05602
It's official! Governor Peter Shumlin first proclaimed Water Quality Day as an annual day of acknowledgment in 2014; Governor Phil Scott continued the tradition.
To raise public awareness of working water, GMWEA coordinates a number of events and activities on Water Quality Day:
Water Quality Day is intended to give credit where credit is due! In May 2017, nine facilities statewide hosted public tours. Tours were attended by school children and their teachers, legislators, municipal staff, and the general public. In 2018, GMWEA is combining forces with the Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation, and will be presenting Water Quality Day on August 3, 2018, as part of the Vt. DEC's Clean Water Week activities. For more information, visit http://dec.vermont.gov/watershed/cwi/clean-water-week
